Bought these for my 88.5, then replaced the seats before I installed them. Not like yours. Approx. 8 11/16 center of pin to pin

Thanks for the reply, but the set I am looking for is like the ones in the first post...

There is a set on ebay, but the seller must be smokin some of that good stuff! ($130 with $60 shipping?!!??!?!?)

The "extra bar" thingy across the middle of the headrest is the set I am after...(I think they are technically JX headrests?)

I had 2 sets like yours and sold a set on ebay recently, ugh they didn't really sell that well!

Looks like they are still available new from Suzuki for about $100.00 each, so yea $190.00 for a pair of used ones is nuts.

86401-70A00-5GS or 5GU . . . last three digits probably being color choice.
Pedantic ~ overly concerned with minute details.  I figured if Peter Griffin could use it, so could I.

I've been using www.megazip.net with great results so far.  For the next week or so they are offering free shipping from Japan for an order of $299.00 or more.  Often they have 10% discounts, follow their Facebook link for 3% off.  I use PayPal.
Russian company that drop ships items from Japan.  Excellent website navigation.  Items ship in about 10 to 15 business days, arrive by Japan EMS with tracking, excellent packaging.  Good communication from their managers if there is a delay with some items on the order. I have ordered some items that weren't available and the money was refunded.
I think I am on my 5th order of parts.  I understand there is some risk with any overseas purchases, you should probably be aware of that too.
Photo is my last haul of Genuine Suzuki Made in Japan Samurai parts from MegaZip.

Thanks!  My favorite part is the driver's side seat bottom upholstery (the only piece still available).  I wasn't sure it would match, so I only ordered one.  When I confirmed it matched, then I ordered a second to modify to fit the passenger side.  Then I thought I would get two more and sew the inserts into the seat backs, because the new upholstery looked so good.
Gone!  I got the last two of those parts in Suzuki's inventory, now listed as discontinued.

Are you sure you want a sunroof in Sacratomato? Man you will burn your noggin up! Besides with all the rain Cali is getting now you might spring a leak in the roof! [lol]  Just food for thought. Be careful what you wish for. Been there, done that!
There are only 2 types of Samurai's: Those we need & those we want!
9/13: Goldilocks 88.5 Samurai ST 29's on 15x7's
11/13: 95 Kick 2WD 5SP 4DR Future parts car
2/15: Red Ryder 88.5 Samurai TT 4.16 TC w/ TT shifter, MKII, SPOA on stock springs, 29's on 15x8's, Calmini OTT, OME Steering Stabilizer,

My sunroof has a plastic sun screen; original owner kept it in his attic all this time ;D



I've got it up there permanently as it doesn't affect its operation; cuts the sun not the wind [thumbsup]
